'LLM-free' is the new '100% organic' - Creators Are Fighting AI Anxiety With an ‘LLM-Free’ Movement ( www.theatlantic.com )

As soon as Apple announced its plans to inject generative AI into the iPhone, it was as good as official: The technology is now all but unavoidable. Large language models will soon lurk on most of the world’s smartphones, generating images and text in messaging and email apps. AI has already colonized web search, appearing in...

Luddites were not idiots, they were people who understood the only use of tech at their time was to fuck them. Like this complete garbage shit is going to be used to fuck people. Nobody is opposed to having tools, we just don't like Musk fanboys blowing spit bubbles while trying to get peepee hard

They were doing ok. But the github thing and the 11 thing and the edging and now this - I can't wait to buy a machine that can run windows virtualised. I need it for my work apps, but this virt thing has been a dream of mine for a long time. Compartmentalization

Hey that's completely fine, I just quit coffee some weeks ago. It's sooo much better for the ol' anxiety

What non-FOSS software have you been unable to quit?

For me, Google video search, Google books (Internet Archive is good, but doesn't always have the same stuff), Adobe InDesign (but in the process of learning LaTeX), and Typewise. As for the Google stuff, I liked Whoogle a lot, but almost all their instances seem to have been blocked or shut down. Also, apologies if this is...

There is also ondsel, which is basically freecad with some polish maybe. It looks the same to me. But one day when they solve the topology renaming thing and when they have an interface that's not openly hostile I'd love to try it

Hey I can pay you in turnips, it's better than having a normal money operation. Like, it doesn't matter that gumroad is turning to crap, we have turnips. People mock my turnips

I think in my part of europe cable is the only realistic solution, every home cellular thing has a download limit. All of the cable offerings here are flat

You can vote as left as you can and still do whatever you are saying to do. Having ultraright nazi shits in power because you're an internet idiot will not help you - in fact it will completely rob you of the chance to ever change anything. You dumb fucks will solve the world by not fucking voting, even if the game is rigged you don't have to be the dumbest shit about it

I'm not talking about the article, it's about saying no. If I need to read the article that says yes when your link says no.. I'm just sick of the onslaught of defetism online where a whole bunch of people have the idea they can just ignore reality and it's all gona fix itself. But who cares right, will all be dead because of the climate wars so it's all cool

Why are keyboards getting smaller?

I'm not a true mechanical keyboard enthusiast. I mean I like a good keyboard for typing code, so I rolled with model-Ms in the 80s and 90s, then some expensive Cherry keyboard I only recently retired because it was utterly spent (and it was PS/2), and now I happily use a Wooting Two HE....

A mystery for me, the numpad is essential and at least 60 percent of the nav cluster is in constant use. And I prefer the full keyboard look

It's always about the money. And if you are building a high building chances are you don't have acres around. And like you say, the solution is not building a dumbass vertical garden, it's politics. Green the city because you as a citizen should force the city to be good

Yeah I wanted to comment on this too. It's a win for ms against dassault every time

Does taking my glasses off to 'let my eyes rest' actually have any meaningful effect? Or am I just making my eyes work harder?

Started wearing glasses full-time a few months ago and I usually take them off during my lunch break because, well I'm mainly looking at my sandwich and I've been told it's good to let your eyes 'relax' as such....

MayonnaiseArch ,
@MayonnaiseArch@beehaw.org avatar

I suppose this varies from person to person and I can only speak as a glass wearer with some.. uhhh.. 30-ish years of practice: your eyes can get tired. I have some days when I can't stand the feeling of my glasses and have to take them off a lot. My experience is that contacts make me really tired, much more than glasses. It's like my brain refuses to function if I see like a normal person. It's all just anecdotal unless a medic confirms it though :)

Fuck this video is amazing and the song is great!

How much does a creator's worldview influence whether you use their tech or consume their media?

Watching the drama around kagi unfold and it has me wondering how much you take into consideration a creator's view on things like homophobia, sexism, racism, etc. when deciding to use a product. I think most of us have a bar somewhere (I would imagine very few on this website would ever consider registering on an altright...

Well let me just help you about Ender there - imagine an akschyaly clever kid, fedora wearing, huffing their own farts while being annoying on twitter and trying to suck their own dick all day. The image is a pimply kid almost reaching their dick, the cum blasts past their face and hits mein kampf on the spine, the kid goes into a crying diatribe about something.

I think that's about it really, might have missed a part of the plot

If I try to spend more than I have it just doesn't work. Nobody charges me for it. But then I can just transfer funds from my account to another, no need for apps and shit, and it costs zero money to do it. You can probably guess I'm not from Murica (where Jesus lives)

Afghan girls as young as 16 arrested in shops, classes and markets in Kabul by the Taliban, who labelled them ‘infidels’ for wearing ‘bad hijab’ ( www.theguardian.com )

The girls – who were detained in shopping centres, classes and street markets – were accused of “spreading and encouraging others to wear a bad hijab” and wearing makeup....

@MayonnaiseArch@beehaw.org avatar

And for the cunts who think there is an end to this kind of bullshit - a hijab is not enough, it has to be good. After that the shade of black is wrong, or the way these women breathe, or they don't cower in a way these fucking micropenis pig-shit eating cunts like.

"If you tell a lie big enough and tell it frequently enough, people will eventually come to believe it". What is an example of this happening today?

I would really rather that these were actual examples, and not conspiracy theories. We all have our own unsubstantiated ideas about what shadowy no-gooders are doing, but I'd rather hear about things that are actually happening.

Sort of like the usa?

Lol ok, I mean you have the ultra right and the right party. They are different, but the usa has a well defined external politic which doesn't really change. So since I'm outside to me it looks almost like china
